Default Re: Am I the only one concerned about next two games

Texans pissed about losing trap game last week at home and have never won in Indy and Texans have by far superior talent and something to play for (BYE) where as Indy risks losing Luck with another win.

All those reasons IMO = Texans win if not win comfortably.

Against Titans, by then they could have nothing left to play for and could be checked out mentally. Texans will be at home and probably have one last shot at a BYE if they win. Hopefully will be coming off first ever win in Indy and will not want to let down home fans again with another stinker.

IMO = Texans win against Titans.

I think we can win last 2 and hopefully get a BYE.

After that, stick with Yates and play football and see what happens. I'm not delusional or on enough Yates kool aid to think we are winning a Super Bowl this year, but I think with the right home matchup we have a damn good shot at a playoff win. IMO, do not start a back up, we ride with what we got, He knows the system and has been actively playing and has the chemistry with the team. Don't screw that up.

Either way, time to just enjoy the ride.

I don't see the next 2 games as "gimmies" but I do think we win at the Indy for the 1st time. The game I think we could lose is the one with the "tacks" and depends if they are still fighting for a wild card or not. As for the playoffs, I hope we do win both these games and get a bye, then play a home game. They win that and they're in the AFC championship game! That would be sweeeeet!

If it were us staying at home & the Titans, Indy, or even Jacksonville going to the play-offs, I'm pretty sure we're going to do whatever we can to beat them.

Knock them out of homefield... we'll try to beat them.

Knock them out of a bye week.... we'll try to beat them.

Just to mess up their Mo going into the play-offs..... we'll try to beat them.

Now the shoes on the other foot, I don't think for a second that beating a division rival isn't enough to get them up for this game if only to say, "you're not better than us!!"

Nope, not really concerned. Call me ignorant, call me obstinate, call me blissfully unaware, but we ought to beat the $#%% out of our next two opponents.

We got our wake up call, we'll have Andre back for the second one (bank it!), and the team is ready to see what they've got in the playoffs.

As long as TJ doesn't screw the pooch, the Texans will be fine.

Go with your first team, find as many things that need to be "fixed" & fix them.
Agree with this. It wouldn't exactly be a great vote of confidence for TJ to pull him and let the guys who were on the street 3 weeks ago run things just to see how they do. Our wagon's hitched to Yates, for better or for worse. He's easily had the greatest exposure of our healthy QB's to our offense this year and has the right tools, I can't fathom starting from scratch again 2 weeks from our first playoff game.

3 and 1/2 games is hardly hitching your wagon to someone. The guy looks at one receiver after he drops back. He is struggling terribly to read defenses. Go ahead and not see what we have in our so called backups. See where the Texans end up with "their wagon hitched to TJ for better or worse". Kubiak is not trusting TJ because the play calling is extremely conservative.

I know. I am now not concerned at all about the next game. It means nothing in the standings but everything in what we can gain from it. We need to use this game as the ULTIMATE practice. If we want to get past the 2nd round we need to change our attitude and approach on offense. Let's try do something out of the box. You need to stretch the field.

Both of these neeed to be played with our highest level of intensity and mistake free to win out.
Oh and like GMA said, they are division games which count toward our seeding.
Dangit, this was one of those monkeys we needed to get off our backs( never won in Indy) and we let " bookem Dan O" beat us, argh!

The most important thing is for us to get our game plan down pat... we need to be perfect executing our game plan.

I don't care if the coaches think we're closer to the Super Bowl by putting Delhomme or Garcia in the game & getting them up to speed or if we're better off going with Tj Yates. All I care, is that they make the decision & move forward with the Super Bowl, winning the Super Bowl, in mind.

I am not going to start nit-picking every decision the Texans make at this point.

& I definitely don't buy this, "taking things for granted" crap... two teams take the field every Sunday & while the Panthers weren't playing for the play-offs, they had plenty to play for.
I still feel the same way.

What bothers me the most when I start some of these threads is the negative rep I get just for starting them and expressing my opinion. I don't think you should get neg rep for starting a thread or expressing an opinion no matter how outlandish it may seem to YOU. Take this one for instance.

The good news is you just never know what is going to happen once the game starts. Three wins at the end of the season and guess what?? You never know, do you.

Did you read some of the posts. I know all the fans did not feel that way but it sure seemed that some did and it sure looked as though the players and coaches might have. So based on my post you think it is correct to neg rep someone.

It makes you wonder if Kubiak is thinking this way. He knows he has no shot at getting to the superbowl so he positions his team to play the easiest playoff game possible to get a win. If they pull it off it builds confidence/hunger/experience for next year. Just a thought. When Kubiak has time he usually overthinks stuff and screws up. The smartest guy in the room thing.

So you're saying he threw the game?

You don't think he put it on the defense to win the game? The strongest part of the team?

You just think he threw the game?
